Oh my, after reading all these posts. I guess I'm not alone on being single. lol.
My last serious relationship ended in 2003 and the heartbreak was devastating. I fell hard for this woman and it took me 3 yrs to get over her. I have dated a few women, but got too scared to take things to the next level because I didn't want to get hurt again.
Being a DJ/co-organizer and a well respected member of the local Goth/Industrial scene, a lot of women do like me but there seems to be a thing or rule "Never date anyone in the scene, because it creates drama". Along the line I have seen some couples living happily and still come to the events with no problems. I guess it depends on some people and how they work on their relationships. Perhaps it's the age thing, I'm 40 and they are in the 25 to 35 yr range. I never paid any attention to the "numbers".
For some time, I've heard that someone's has a crush on me or she wants to go out with me, but it never happens. UGH!!
I don't want go out with someone that just wants me to sew stuff for her for free either, mind you I had a few of those and got ripped off badly.
I figure I might as well look for someone that is not in the scene, but accepts it at least.
(fingers crossed) I'm going to the Comic-con, here in Calgary next month. Hopefully I might meet someone nice and fun.
My costumes have never failed to impress anyone either.
